The LSU Philosophy Colloquium
The LSU Philosophy Colloquium is established for the expressed purpose of building a community of students, faculty, staff, and public citizens who support the study and practice of philosophy. Any LSU student, faculty or staff member, as well as any member of the public, who subscribes to the purpose and basic policies of the organization may become a member of this organization, subject only to compliance with the provision of the constitution. To keep track of colloquium events, check the Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/philo.colloquium.

LSU Cares is a collaborative campus-wide initiative led by the Division of Student Life & Enrollment to identify and positively intervene with students to help them succeed. The mission of LSU Cares centers on providing a mechanism for reporting situations and students of concern in an appropriate way.
The initiative consists of two teams: the Academic Intervention Team (AIT) which addresses academic concerns, and the C.A.R.E. (Communicate, Assess, Refer, Educate) Team, which addresses behavioral concerns. Concerns about LSU students can be submitted online at the LSU Cares page at http://www.lsu.edu/lsucares. Submissions will be immediately routed to the appropriate team for review. Appropriate submissions may include academic or personal difficulties such as death in the family, irregular course attendance, financial difficulties or academic underperformance.
LSU is a caring, supportive, purposeful, and engaged community supporting all current students across the university. We appreciate your support.
